Synopsis

What happens when two people love each other but just aren't meant to be together? Takaki Toono and Akari Shinohara are childhood friends, but circumstances beyond their control tear them apart. They promise to stay in contact, and although the progression of time widens the distance between them, the chain of memories remains ever-present.

Byousoku 5 Centimeter is a romantic drama that focuses on the mundane and harsh reality of long-distance relationships. Stuck in the past and unable to make any new memories, Takaki and Akari cling to the hope of seeing each other again. They live their everyday lives half-heartedly, both hurting themselves and the people around them.

I highly recommend to just watch it sooner.
This movie contains quite a philosophical exploration of relationships and their retrospective view, presenting both the sweet and the bitter aspects that not many movies have.
Every words used in the movie carry significant meaning.
It offers another perspective on life, living, love, and regret, portrayed through Takaki as if he were reflecting myself from a couple of years ago.
The story has stuck in my head for quite a while and i've rewatched it quite a few time, but yeah, it is what it is. A masterpiece.
In essence, "5 Centimeters Per Second" serves as a poignant reminder ...

Mixed Feelings
I've heard that a lot of people say this is a really good story, but I've gotta disagree.
Other than the incredible animation the movie is overall mostly just boring, there are some good scenes but only a few. I have watched it twice now, since the first time I didn't like it. Then I read the manga and I wanted to give it another chance, but I gotta say I think the manga is a lot better, even though it was made after the movie, I think it goes more in depth and has a lot more to offer.

Even though I don't like, I ...

One of the worst animes to be ever created. Let's start by good things and that is art. Animation is simply good that makes you wanna continue watching. That is the end of good things about this show. The story is so boring and such a sleeper that you can't focus for more than 2 minutes without checking your phone or switching tabs to YouTube. Besides that fact the story is not even deep or anything, doesn't show any interesting concepts or values, nothing interesting happens in this. I literally forced myself to watch this show to the end because i thought that there'll be ...
